The Disputed Territories of Zoosterland is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 16.361 billion Zoosterlandians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 49.1%.

The Zoosterlandian economy, worth 523 trillion Yen a year, is quite specialized and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 31,966 Yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zoosterland's national animal is the Black Widow.

Zoosterland is ranked 183,847th in the world and 25th in HC Metalurg for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 54.67 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
